Hi Stampers! As my title suggests - I have two things to share today - a pretty butterfly and lovely bird nest!
I made my butterfly card for the Split Coast Tuesday Teapot Challenge - this was the teapot Cindy wrote her story about. Funky huh?!
And here's the card I made - inspired by the teapot (and Cindy's story which you can see here)
Nordic Spring in Cherry Twinkle embossing powder by Judi Kins - something I recently bought and was perfect for this card - it is REALLY shiny IRL! I also used red metallic paper for my little baby butterflies. I really got carried away with the busy patterned paper and dotted ribbon but was totally inspired by Cindy's teapot! The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse.
And now the bird nest - I made this card for the Split Coast Color Challenge - Hostess Peggy's colors for us this week were Chocolate Chip, Baja Blue and River Rock
I stamped this wonderful LaBlanche stamp - Nest with Eggs - in Archival Coffee ink then colored it using Cut-n-Dry pen nibs and River Rock and Baja Breeze inks. LaBlanche stamps work best on LeBlanche paper. It's like glossy card stock - but not quite as glossy. I stamped the Easter Blessings from Verve directly on the patterned paper with Archival Coffee Ink.
And here's the inside - I stamped the verse in Coffee Ink and the cross in River Rock ink. The stamps are from Everlasting Life by Verve
